Matt Rosendale Opposes Purple Heart Veterans and Gold Star Families
Helena, MT – As Maryland Matt Rosendale continues his election year pandering on veterans issues in the final stretch, his long record of opposition to veterans’ benefits remains a drag on his flailing campaign.

As a state legislator, Matt Rosendale voted against creating a program that created a scholarship for Montana Purple Heart recipients to help them find a path to pursue higher education.

It wasn’t the only time Rosendale attempted to block well-deserved benefits for veterans and their families. Maryland Matt voted against creating a program that has helped hundreds of veterans and gold star families buy homes. The loan program was endorsed by the VFW, American Legion, and National Guard, but Maryland Matt still couldn’t bring himself to do right by Montana’s veterans. Thankfully, despite Rosendale’s objections, the bill passed, was signed into law by Governor Bullock, and has since provided hundreds of loans to Montana veterans. 

Kathleen Williams, serving in the Montana House at the time, voted for both bills. Kathleen is the daughter of a World War II veteran and wife of a Vietnam-era  veteran, and she will never stop fighting to ensure that our brave servicemembers get the care and benefits they deserve.

“I’m a Vietnam era U.S. Army veteran, a Republican. I’m voting for Kathleen Williams because I know we share the same values,” said U.S Army Veteran Alan Charles. “Kathleen works with people from both sides of the aisle to reach the best possible solution for Montana. I believe Kathleen will work hard to help bring us all together again.”

Watch: “Same Values
